Leveling options
« on: May 14, 2012, 07:30:39 AM »
I'm considering replacing the torpedo level with something a little easier, what do you use?

Here was one option I found.

This new concept in trailer leveling is sure to attract upscale and replacement purchases. It provides side-to-side and front-to-back leveling. The level indicates how many inches to raise the low side to level. Plus - memory to return to hitch height when re-connecting tow vehicle. No more jumping in and out of truck.

does it swing out on a hinge to obtain the opposite side leveling placement?

I bring a 4 foot level and place it on the camper at the center of each edge... works great!

The pics on etrailer show it hinging out:


I think that might be so you can set the dial ("memory") when it's mounted on the front of the trailer, though.  I can envision a setup where you could use it for both front-to-back and side-to-side, but you'd have to sacrifice the memory function to get it to do that.
